During our last fund drive one donor said this: "I love hymns ... If you asked for money, it means you need it! Please keep the work going. And please, accept my widow's mite. God bless you."

She was right. We only ask for money twice a year, and we do so because we need it.

Original full lyrics to How Great Thou Art

How can I get the rest of the lyrics to the translation that starts out, “Oh Lord my God, when I in awe and wonder” rather than “awesome wonder”? Thank you for any help available!


There is a translation bu Barrie J. Ibbott of Boberg's text with the first line "O mighty God, it is with awe and wonder." https://hymnary.org/text/o_mighty_god_it_is_with_awe_and_wonder. We have a list of two hymnals where it can be found.
